Buster Bloodvessel (1958-)

Buster Bloodvessel (born Douglas Trendle, September 6, 1958) is an English singer and the frontman of the ska revival band Bad Manners. His stage name was taken from the bus conductor played by Ivor Cutler in the Beatles‘ 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour.

Bloodvessel founded Bad Manners with school friends in 1976. They were a popular live attraction in North London, with their brand of humorous ska making them comedians of the ska revival scene, with Buster often wagging his large tongue at his audiences. Bad Manners earned nine Top 40 singles between 1980 and 1983, and the band have remained a popular live act throughout Britain and Europe ever since.
